A Word About Recycling with Ollie Maier

Last week we went slightly north and talked about the efforts of a small trash/recycling company in Austin. This week we will start by going somewhat south to San Antonio. Information again taken from a Recycling Today eNewsletter.

The article started with: “The San Antonio Express-News reports that residents of San Antonio may be fined $25 by the city’s Solid Waste Management Department for depositing trash in their curbside recycling bins. “
